GAME by Unstable King
Game is a comedy show about three friends who believe they are trapped in a game. Told through sketch inspired comedy, invented games, circus feats and Chuck Norris’s Martial Way™ the show is a playful journey about winning, losing and the discomfort of close range paint-ball gunfire. Inspired by the virtual worlds of computer games, the glory of Takeshi’s Castle and the inherent joy in winning it is a perfect nostalgia trip for the Nintendo 64 generation and a hilarious anti-Disney adventure for children. Featuring music by Bon Jovi, Neutral Milk Hotel, Kola Kid and the should have been massive martial arts rock band Dragon Sound.

The Most Dangerous Cup Of Tea In The World by Tit for Tat
Meet Rick & Kevin, two contrasting oddballs drawn together by a most bizarre and dangerous passion for tea. They have concocted a recipe born from one belief; tea only tastes good if you almost die making it! Join them in a whirlwind escapade of laughter, skill, and storytelling as they make the most dangerous cup of tea in the world! A show with spectacular juggling displays, comical acrobatics, farcical play and general sillyness! Rick & Kevin have made each step of the tea making process as near-lethal as possible.
Using Circus, Farce, and Theatre, we look for the oddities within normality. Visually and physically exploring the extremes of complexity. Aiming to makke our audiences hold their breath, choke on their expectations, and then laugh it all out... whilst hopefully experiencing something truly unique in the process!
The Caligari Experience by Compass
The show presents silent-cinema classic The Cabinet of Dr Caligari in triple screen panorama, around which a 3D projection-mapped set allows the scenes of this beautifully realised film to expand out into the space. These exquisitely created environments (created through original techniques of handpainting, digitizing and animating for projection) unfold via digital mapping, pulling the audience into the crooked Gothic world of the film. Within this immersive setting the cast perform, peopling the film’s streets and spaces with physical theatre, circus, dance and aerial pieces that extend and explore the films atmosphere, energy and nuances.
Weaving together all of these visual elements is the atmospheric soundscape of Minima’s avant-garde score, synthesising electric guitar, cello, bass and drums into a fusion that is at times psychedelic, with movements that are beautiful and haunting.
